Judd Apatow, Steve Carell, and More Stars React to Sony Canceling 'The Interview'

3 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Did America just lose its first cyberwar?

Sony announced Wednesday that The Interview will not be released after a hack leaked embarrassing executive emails, full-length movies and threatened Americans in theaters with 9/11-like attacks if they went to see it.

The Interview stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, and in the comedy, North Korea's Kim Jong-Un is assassinated. But the actors need not worry as their famous friends are standing up for them and their right to creative expression.

News: Here is Sony's statement about canceling 'The Interview'

Taking to Twitter, everyone from Judd Apatow to Rob Lowe to Mitt Romney are blasting Sony's decision to cancel the controversial comedy's theatrical release.

I think it is disgraceful that these theaters are not showing The Interview. Will they pull any movie that gets an anonymous threat now?

Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) December 17, 2014

This only guarantees that this movie will be seen by more people on Earth than it »

'A Most Violent Year' (2014) Movie Review

4 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A Most Violent Year explores the question of how dirty you'll allow your hands to get in your effort to achieve the success you desire with a clear conscience. Center stage, soiling his hands and yet not entirely ready to admit it, is Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac), a small-time heating oil distributor facing issues with his competitors, the district attorney (David Oyelowo) and the banks. A little more comfortable with dealing with reality is Abel's wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain), the two having worked side-by-side for years, taking over the business from her father and finally looking to turn the small family business into something much bigger as the film opens with Abel making a deal to purchase an oil holding facility along the water. Abel's mounting troubles, however, are likely to make finalizing that deal a little harder. Where the film's ominous title comes into play is in its setting. »

17 December 2014 4:07 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Unless you're dead, you probably know that Sony Pictures has officially pulled the theatrical release of "The Interview" following threats of terrorist action by the Sony hackers (who, according to a number of media outlets including the New York Times, have been linked to the North Korean government). Needless to say, America isn't happy about this and Hollywood especially isn't happy about this, judging by responses from a number of entertainment luminaries on Twitter. Below you can find a roundup of snap reactions to this complex, unprecedented situation by Tinseltown's elite. Judd Apatow: I think it is disgraceful that these theaters are not showing The Interview.

Finding Dory: Plot details and setting revealed by Pixar chief

13 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Plot and setting details for Finding Dory have emerged at Comic Con Experience in Brazil.

According to Slashfilm (via Omelete), Pixar president Jim Morris revealed that the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life.

Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) will discover she was born there and freed into the ocean at a young age, which sets her off on a trip to find her parents.

Both Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo will return in the sequel and make the journey with her - Willem Defoe will be returning too, but it is unclear in what capacity.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy have signed up to play the voices of Dory's parents.

Meanwhile, The Wire's Idris Elba and Dominic West will reunite and voice characters in the sequel.

Finding Dory has previously been delayed, and is »

'The Little Prince' International Trailer

10 December 2014 4:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly a year and a half after the English voice cast was announced, the first trailer has been released for The Little Prince, an adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's literary classic of the same name. The footage is completely in French, so we'll have to wait for a domestic trailer to hear voice cast members such as Rachel McAdams, Mackenzie Foy, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks and Ricky Gervais, but the international trailer gives us a glimpse at the visual style that blends stop motion and CGI animation.

The original novel centers on an airplane pilot, who crash-lands in the Sahara Desert. He comes across a young boy that claims to be a prince from his home on an asteroid. During his time repairing the downed aircraft, the young boy tells stories about the foolish inhabitants surrounding his asteroid. In the adaptation, »

Will Finding Dory still delight without the thrill of the open ocean?

10 December 2014 8:34 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Pixar’s president confirmed that the follow-up to finding Nemo will be located in a marine biology institute – part of a pro-science trend for films aimed at families

Surely you remember Dory, the puzzled paracanthurus whose voice bore a striking resemblance to Ellen Degeneres’s? The perplexed regal blue tang was the great comic sidekick to Marlin, Albert Brooks’s nervous dad (and fish) from the 2003 hit Finding Nemo. The Pixar sensation still holds the record for bestselling DVD of all time and is one of the top grossing films ever released.

The movie still resonates. Go to an aquarium that features clownfish and count how many children shout “it’s Nemo!” So it’s no wonder that Pixar (and parent company Disney) are reviving the story for a sequel, out in summer 2016. But Finding Dory almost found itself swimming against a current of hashtags.

This Trailer for 'The Little Prince' Doesn't Disappoint

10 December 2014 3:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mon dieu! The international trailer for "The Little Prince" has landed, and it is just lovely. Sure, it's completely in French, but if you remember the book, you can get the gist of it from watching. Or, you can just enjoy the dazzling animation that brings to life the beloved story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Plus, thanks to Vulture, you don't even need to fire up Google Translate if your French is a little rusty.

Old man: Oh, oh! I'm here! Up here! [He waves.] Good evening!

Little girl: [Reading] Once upon a time, a little prince who needed a friend?

Old man: I've flown almost everywhere in the world, until something miraculous happened.

Little Prince: Please, draw me a sheep.

Old man: I've always wanted to find someone to share my story with, but I think this world has become too grown-up ... It's only the beginning of the story!

Plot details for Pixar’s Finding Dory

9 December 2014 9:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Details have been spotty for Disney and Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory. Original claims stated that the movie would be about Dory finding her parents with the help of Marlon and Nemo from the Great Barrier Reef to the California Coastline, and then rumours stated it would be set in an aquatic park. But critical and social backlash and outcry against Seaworld due to documentary Blackfish put a stop to that.

Now it is being reported by Collider (via Omelete) that the movie will be set in just one location.

“[Pixar President Jim] Morris said the sequel takes place six months after the first movie, and Dory, now living in the same reef as the clown fishes, living a normal and quiet life, dealing with her forgetfulness. One day she goes with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, which makes her feel home sick »

International Trailer for The Little Prince Film Adaptation

9 December 2014 9:23 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

An international trailer has been released for the big screen adaptation of The Little Prince. The film is based on the book by the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The film was made with a mix of CG and stop-motion animation. 

The trailer is completely in French, but it does give us our first look at what we can expect to see in the movie. Since the book is so short, the filmmakers took creative liberties to add a few things to stretch it out into a feature length film. Basically they set the story in a new narrative with the use of a little girl who discovers the Prince's adventures with the stranded pilot/author from the story. I do have to say that the film looks absolutely beautiful.

The Little Prince stars Riley Osborne as the Prince, Marion Cotillard as The Rose, Rachel McAdams as The Mother, »

New Setting Details for Pixar's Finding Dory

9 December 2014 7:12 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Some new details have surfaced about Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. It was previously revealed that the story will take place a year after the first film and that it will be set along the California coastline. As far as the story goes,

"A traumatizing event sets off Dory’s 'homing instinct,' and the forgetful fish sets out in search of her family, who are living on a reef. Meanwhile, Nemo and Marlin are out looking for her." 

Pixar president Jim Morris revealed some interesting new information at the Comic Con Experience Brazil. At the convention he showed off some art and unfinished scenes from the upcoming sequel and offered some additional details. 

One of the biggest reveals is that the story will be mainly set in the Marine Biology Institute of California, which is a huge rehabilitation complex for marine life. Dory learns she was born and »

Pixar's 'Finding Dory' Story and Setting Revealed

9 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Pixar has a full upcoming slate that includes next summer's Inside Out followed by The Good Dinosaur in November, along with the much anticipated debut of Toy Story 4 in 2017, one of their most anticipated projects is a sequel to the 2003 classic Finding Nemo. Omlete recently caught up with Pixar President Jim Morris, who spoke about the 2016 release. He offered the first new information we've heard about this follow-up in quite sometime, revealing the story and the setting.

Even though it will have been 13 years since we last saw Nemo and Dory, Finding Dory will pick up a mere six months since the original. Dory (a role being reprised by Ellen DeGeneres) is living a quite life among the other clown fish. After going on a class trip with Nemo, she begins to feel homesick and sets out on a quest to find her humble origins. Says Jim Morris »

First Trailer For Upcoming Animated Adaptation Of The Little Prince

9 December 2014 5:46 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Unfortunately you won't hear any of them in this particular trailer, because it's in French! The Little Prince has always been one of my favourite stories, but the slim novella hardly warrants a full-length animated feature. With that in mind, they've added a framing story of a little girl discovering the Prince's earthly adventures with, we assume, the stranded pilot/author as we do in the movie. The Little Prince stars Riley Osborne as the Prince, Marion Cotillard as The Rose, Rachel McAdams as The Mother, James Franco as The Fox, Jeff Bridges as The Aviator, Benicio del Toro as The Snake, Ricky Gervais as The Conceited Man, Paul Giamatti as The Teacher, Albert Brooks as Businessman, Bud Cort as The King, and Mackenzie Foy as The Girl. The film is set for release in France on October 7th, 2015. No Us/UK date has been announced yet. »

New 'Finding Dory' Plot and Setting Details Revealed

9 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Pixar's upcoming "Finding Nemo" sequel, "Finding Dory," just uncovered a huge trove of information about the film's cast, plot, and setting.

"Dory" focuses on the titular fish (once again voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), and picks up only a few months after the 2003 original left off. Dory is living on the reef with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo, and joins Nemo on a class field trip, which triggers memories from her past.

The intel was revealed by Pixar president Jim Morris during a recent appearance at Ccxp (Comic Con Experience) in Brazil, where Morris also discussed the primary setting for the flick. A large portion of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, described as a large rehabilitation complex for aquatic life where Dory was born, and from which she was released into the ocean at a young age.

In addition to the familiar faces of Dory, »

Finding Dory Will Anchor Its Story In One Location

8 December 2014 2:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pixar Animation’s sequel to their massive aquatic hit, Finding Nemo, is taking its time getting to the big screen, but at least now we know the direction it’s swimming in. Titled Finding Dory, the movie is set to focus on the origins of chatterbox fish Dory from the first movie. As its name suggests, the narrative drive will stem from little Dory’s desire to find herself, an idea which kickstarts a mission to track down her parents.

Since the sequel nabbed the greenlight, rumours of where exactly Dory, Nemo and co. will venture have ranged from Sea World to the Great Barrier Reef. It would seem that the shenanigans of Dory’s self-exploration are likely to be more stationary than the first movie, thanks to a handful of details revealed by Pixar President Jim Morris in an interview via Collider.

Here’s their scoop in full:

New Details Revealed about Finding Dory Setting; Movie Is Mostly Set at One Location

8 December 2014 1:19 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, we reported that Pixar's Finding Dory would be about the forgetful fish (Ellen DeGeneres) trying to find her parents with the help of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo.  We also learned that her story would take the trio from the Great Barrier Reef to along the California coastline.  Granted, the film is still far off and a lot can change when it comes to an animated movie, but it's not a premise, especially if you have Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy voicing Dory's parents.  There was also word that the movie would take place at an aquatic park, and that the ending was tweaked in response to the outcry from the heart-wrenching documentary Blackfish, which is about the abuse of orcas at Sea World. Now a recent interview with Pixar President Jim Morris has provided new details regarding one of the film's major settings and how it affects the plot. »

New Story Details Emerge on Pixar's Aquatic Sequel 'Finding Dory'

8 December 2014 1:15 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Disney has set the Pixar Animation sequel Finding Dory for release on June 17th, 2016, which is still over a year and a half away. However, since this is an animated film we're talking about, a lot of the details on the film are already firm since it takes so long for the film to be completed. We know that because over a year ago, Pixar was already working on a new ending for the sequel to Finding Nemo due to the backlash against SeaWorld following the damning details revealed in the documentary Blackfish. Other than that details on the film that is being co-directed by Pixar veterans Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane ("Toy Story of Terror") have been relatively scarce, but some new tidbits have surfaced today. More below! We already knew that the story was going to follow Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) on a journey to »

'Most Violent Year' Clip: Jessica Chastain Confronts Oscar Isaac

4 December 2014 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Anna Morales (Jessica Chastain) confronts her husband Abel (Oscar Isaac) about a gun she found in their front yard in a new clip from A Most Violent Year. This drama is set in the winter of 1981 in New York City, statistically the most dangerous year in the city's history. Unlike the "cute little warnings" this couple has received over the past few years, Anna knows that this gun means her family is in real danger.

Director J.C. Chandor's third feature examines one immigrant's determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and - above all - his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right. »

New A Most Violent Year Clip Carries a Loaded Gun in the Upcoming Drama Starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain

4 December 2014 9:17 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 has released a new A Most Violent Year clip.  The film takes place in New York City in 1981, and stars Oscar Isaac as a businessman trying to get a loan to expand his shipping company, but must contend with pressure from his wife (Jessica Chastain), the deputy attorney general (David Oyelowo), and organized crime families.  This premise and this clip may hint at a more intense story, but the film is actually pretty dull and consists largely of Isaac's character moping around to get enough loans to save his business investment. Hit the jump to check out the A Most Violent Year clip.  The film opens in limited release on December 31st before expanding nationwide in January, and also stars Albert Brooks and Alessandro Nivola.
